    A longer contract doesn't mean he will stay...it will probably just guarantee us a higher transfer fee if we are going to sell him.

    In the same interview he also said that he'd like to do like Maldini and become a club legend, and stated that he was 150% committed to Milan. As his reputation and talent grow, Milan will need to be able to have a strong enough squad to compete for the honors Pato wants to win. It seems that he likes to play for Milan, but he's not so dedicated that he'd never move. Milan need to keep him happy enough to get him to sign a new contract extension. A lot of that will come down to strengthening the squad. His contract expires in 2012 when he'll be only 23 years old. It be silly to lose a player of his ability just when he's entering his prime.

    I like Pato's character and playing style, so I'd like to see him at Milan for the long haul.

    he still has lots of time to show dunga what he can do. remember how bad he's been so far this season. it's just been in the last week that he has started to turn his game back around.

    Pato hasn't been called since Conf Cup....and Nilmar has scored 6 goals in 7 games for Brazil.........and now things have starting turning around for Villarreal, so it will be hard for Pato to knock off Nilmar from the Brazilian squad.

    Dunga only calls 4 Fwds
    Main Strikers -> Fabiano & Adriano/Hulk
    2nd Strikers -> Robinho & Nilmar

    Pato needs to improve, otherwise he'll stay on the bench....

    If Pato has decent service he scores. Just because he has one off-game where our whole offense was crap he is not good anymore?

    Its not whether or not he scores, its whether he tries to get into good positions. Pato can be guilty of ball watching sometimes, where he isn't involved in the play and he just waltzes around. With players like Ibra and Cassano around, he needs to be alert at all times because they can create goals out of nothing.

    Oddo's in on it now too: “Pato is a boy who needs to mature,” said the former Lazio captain.

    “He must listen to the advice which he is given because the boy lacks experience.”

    Isn't it a necessity to get in a good position in order to score?
    If Ibra and Cassano offer him opportunities I think especially Pato will be the guy who jumpes at those. (vs. Udinese: assist Ibra, goal Pato; assist Cassano, (pretty sweet) goal Pato)
    As striker Pato imho churns out as many scoring opportunities as Ibra, it's just that Ibra is more of a focal point who likes to hold on to the ball more and thus helping build up the play more.
    Pato tends to drift off too much at times but his output remains outstanding for a 21year old striker, so I don't really get all that drama and especially teammates (Ibra, Gattuso, Oddo) jumping on him publicly.

    Well Oddo can STFU as far as I'm concerned, he's been in retirement since the 2006 World Cup. However, Pato needs to realize he must be constantly at the service of the team.

    His flaws, in my opinion, are selfishness and isolation. He forgets that moving the ball quickly is more effective and when others have the ball he tends to watch them play instead of getting involved. If you watch a player like David Villa for example, he always runs into the right spaces to receive a pass and shoot on goal or create space for those around him. He creates 3-4 chances a game. Pato could learn so much from the players around him, like Inzaghi and even Ibra, but for some reason he still acts like a primavera player.

    Yes, and he is gifted at it inside the box. However, sometimes he just switches off and doesn't see the spaces he should be moving into to help his teammates. You can't stay in the box all the time, even Inzaghi will check to the ball and ask for it.
